"Don't worry about us!"

Once upon a time, there was a family of ducks who lived by the river. One day, as they were swimming downstream, they heard a loud noise. Suddenly, a big gust of wind blew in and swept them away from each other.
One of the ducklings was scared and crying out loud, “Mama! Papa! Where are you? Are you okay?” As he was floating down the river on his own, he saw his parents and siblings waving at him from a distance. They shouted back at him, “Don’t worry about us! We’re okay!”
The little duckling felt relieved and shouted back, “WEREOK!” as he continued to float on the river, knowing he would eventually reunite with his family.
In this way, the crossword clue, “Don’t worry about us!” and its answer, “WEREOK”, are connected, as they reflect the reassurance given by the duckling’s family to ease his worries and fears.
